Called in the Ivy House Cafe for lunch this week. Terrible from the moment we walked in. The staff were rude, uninterested and treated us as an inconvenience. On reflection should have walked out but thought we would give the food a chance. As we were waiting a staff member began swatting flies against the wall, killed one, picked it... More

Staff were lovely and room was immaculate. The views we had were breath taking from our room. Loved the security aspect too that not just anyone could walk in and out. Breakfast was tasty and very well presented. Will be returning again. Thank you.

We stayed here for one night, purely for attending a venue at the Scarborough Spa. Staying in the Treasure Chest room. This was a quirky, lovely, clean and welcoming room, with a mezzanine. There is no on site parking, but parked up on the Marine Drive, with loads of long stay spaces. Positioned right on the harbour front, with great... More

We booked to stay at the beachcomber cottage. We made the booking in August 2013 (almost a whole year ago) and received a confirmation email. Just two days before we were due to travel we received a phone call from the owner to say that our booking could not be honoured as she had double booked. We could only be... More

Bear with me, folks, this is going to be long, I'm afraid. We got in touch with Ivy House in August 2013 to book the Beachcomber Cottage for summer 2014.  We wanted to go Saturday-Saturday but the earliest they could fit us in was Tuesday, so we booked for a week.  I had an email confirmation on 31st August 2013,...

Great service, bright and clean cafe, beautiful sea views and well mannered staff, would definitely advise this place for visitors or people who want a break. Will be coming back in summer and next year to stay again.

We ate in the cafe. The decor was bright and clean with good music in the background. The setting on the sea front is excellent. Our order was taken promptly and politely. Unlike many other places we were not constantly asked by staff if our meal was alright. If only they had! We had the advertised special of home made... More

Great choice of food in the café, cannot comment on the hotel itself. Great service by youngster with excellent customer service and manners. BLT was excellent. Very friendly place, worth a visit - right on the sea front (south side)

We stayed in the ivy house beach comber cottage, the linen and towels were clean and we'll presented. The kitchen was very poor, we couldn't get the cooker to work ("stop" just appeared when turned on) on arriving I had told the owner we were awaiting an asda delivery for tea. All the food we bought went to waste, bumped... More
